Saturday is looking unsettled with some snow showers in the morning above 1200 meters with some weak ridging by Saturday night. The ridge strengthens for Sunday with sunny skies and the FL maxing out at around 2000 meters. Warm unsettled weather is expected early next week with more frontal bands possible by Wednesday.
